It’s interesting that sometimes we just need to add a simple piece to make your usual outfit look amazing. A good example of such a magical item would be the blanket jacket. It can just take your outfit to another level if you style it properly. Not only does it look good, a blanket jacket is also very useful in situations like a restaurant with freezing cold air conditioners. For this blog post, I’ve rounded up some amazing ways to wear a blanket cardigan to give you ideas on what to wear with it.
Navy & Cream Blanket Cardigan with White Tank & Black Shorts
Wearing a blanket jacket with shorts can really accentuate your long legs and make you look sexy. As a good example, you can wear a dark blue and cream cardigan over a white tank top and black shorts. Leather boots go perfectly with the outfit to create that feminine, sexy look.
Camel blanket cardigan with white vest top and skinny jeans
A long cardigan can make you look so airy. Just wear a long green cardigan over a white waistcoat and skinny jeans with cuffs. Add an extra touch of elegance by wearing open leather ankle boots.
Wear it with a black tank top and black skinny jeans
A nice way to wear a blanket jacket is to wear it as part of an all-black outfit. For example, you can wear a light gray cardigan over a black t-shirt and black skinny jeans.

Sometimes colors make a big difference. A blue and white outfit can just make you look so beautiful and happy. Just wear a long sleeved white t-shirt and blue jeans with a blue cardigan. Wear white sneakers to complete this lovely casual outfit.
Cream colored cardigan with denim shirt and jeans
I always try to figure out how to style a denim shirt as it really is one of my favorite pieces, especially when it comes to casual outfits. It turns out that a denim shirt with a blanket jacket can look pretty good. For example, you can just wear a denim shirt with jeans, white sneakers and a cream colored cardigan.
Black and red plaid sweater
I often think that the red and black plaid is reserved for boyfriend shirts as they are just too iconic. Seems like they look pretty good in a blanket jacket too. You can wear the plaid cardigan over a black T-shirt and skinny jeans. Suede ankle boots are the perfect shoes for an outfit.

Wear with Gray Vest Top & Denim Shorts
An outfit consisting of a shirt, jean shorts and white sneakers is so typical and yet so refreshing and timeless. Now take it to another level by wearing the outfit with a black and gray cardigan. Imagine how practical and beautiful you can look with this outfit in a restaurant when you wear your typical summer outfit, but the air conditioning makes the room so cold.
Black blanket cardigan with cropped skinny jeans
This is probably the most classic outfit idea on the list. A solid black knit blanket looks best when simply paired with a white top, skinny jeans, and black heels. This minimal outfit looks just right. It’s one of those outfits where all of the simple pieces go together perfectly.
